Welcome to the Derby US Art Society


Art Society is open to both experienced artists, art students and beginners who just want to try something new. Our aim at the Art Society is to create a welcoming space for creativity to flourish through: 
- Professional development opportunities for members who want to work in the creative arts
- Delivering arts for wellbeing across the wider university community.
- Regular relaxed social space for creating together.
- Access to our creative community regardless of identity, social circumstances or money. 

What do we do? Socials, Exhibitions and Workshops


Over the year we will be hosting a variety of events both online and face-to-face, ensuring you can get the most from the art society. 
Our plan for the year includes:
  • Art Society Open House: Weekly relaxed creative space, free to everyone! 
  • Regular talks and workshops to gain creative and professional skills. 
  • Arts for wellbeing workshops. 
  • Affiliations with the local creative community in Derby. 
  • Christmas Art-card fundraiser. 
  • The first Derby US Art Society Exhibition at Banks Mill Studios, in January/February 2022.
These are no-commitment events: come along to as much or as little as you like!
